Big news regarding a popular event that will take place here in Louisville on Friday. We just heard that FMCSA Administrator Anne Ferro, who is attending MATS as part of the agency's listening sessions, will be participating in the Driver Health Walk.
The event is hosted by Trucking Solutions Group, a group of professional truck drivers, and is co-hosted by TA/Petro.
Two members of TSG, Rick Ash and Linda Caffee (they are both OOIDA members, too) told us just minutes ago that Ferro planned to do her opening remarks at the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration listening session scheduled for Friday but would take time out to do the Health Walk, then return to the listening session.
It's a 1.5-mile walk, scheduled for 2 p.m. at the Kentucky Expo Center, Room B103. Linda says you can preregister at truckingsolutionsgroup.org. She says goodie bags will be provided to walkers by TA/Petro while they last.
